Rumor: Next iPad Will Look Exactly Like You’d Expect

It was probably too much to ask that we make it to the end of the year without firing up the new [new (new)] iPad rumor mill, especially given that it’s barely been two months since the iPad 4 appeared. And yet! There is, says Macotakara —a site that’s usually pretty good at this sort of thing—a new iPad in the works

Rumor: Next iPad Will Look Exactly Like You'd ExpectIt was probably too much to ask that we make it to the end of the year without firing up the new [new (new)] iPad rumor mill, especially given that it’s barely been two months since the iPad 4 appeared. And yet!

There is, says Macotakara—a site that’s usually pretty good at this sort of thing—a new iPad in the works. It will, says the site’s unnamed source, look like a powered-up iPad mini and will be available in March. One of those things is probably true. The other is wolf-face crazy.

The first half of today’s rumor makes so much sense that you’d hardly need a source to put it out there; the next iPad will be thinner, lighter, and adopt some of the iPad mini’s anodized goodness. The next generation of Product X will be thinner and lighter is a non-starter; what gadget doesn’t strive for that every time out? And picking up iPad mini design cues is—like slapping the lightning connector in there—a necessary step towards keeping a nice clean consistent product line-up. It is a no-brainer. No arguments here, super-vague unnamed single Macotakara source.

What this rumor seems like—and what most will be until we get closer to an actual release—is a rehash of obvious points mixed with misguided guessing. You don’t need a source to tell you that the next iPad will look more like the iPad mini, any more than you do that each generation of MacBook Pro will look more like the MacBook Air. Just like, on the flip side, you don’t need to listen to rumors that don’t make any sense. [Macotakara via 9to5Mac]
